MPN provides access to diverse artists through reduced-price, cooperative booking.
• Professional development
MPN offers seminars and lectures as part of the annual meetings.

MPN encourages ethical practices in the presenting field.

Our History

MPN was formed in 1992 and has grown to include its present membership representing almost 50 organizations of all sizes. MPN is now incorporated as a Minnesota a non-member non-profit
corporation.

MPN encourages membership from organizations interested in the exchange of ideas between presenters. It is important to note that MPN includes both urban and rural organizations.

Our Meetings

MPN meets at least twice each year and combines its business meeting with discussions on critical topics such as statewide arts funding, organizational development, block-booking opportunities, as well as emerging issues in the performing arts world. One meeting each year is devoted to a block-booking session – typically at the Arts Midwest Conference, held each year in September.

Other meetings are held in different communities throughout the state, which provides members the opportunity to visit other performance venues.
